For over eighteen years The New Orleans Jazz Vipers have been an institution of Swing music on Frenchmen Street, the jazz mecca of New Orleans. The Jazz Vipers have been regarded by many as pioneers of the “Frenchmen Street Swing Renaissance.” With infectious rhythm, spirited horns, and a diverse line-up of vocals, they are all that is swing and all that is New Orleans.
The Jazz Vipers’ current lineup includes some of the city’s best traditional jazz talent, with Joe Braun (alto sax/vocals) at the helm: Craig Klein (trombone/vocals), Earl Bonie (tenor sax/clarinet), Steve Detory (piano/vocals), Molly Reeves (guitar/vocals), and Mitchell Player(bass/vocals).
